Drew brought his new drone into school today, to show us what he can do with it.
He took our new class photo with it, from the air and explained how he can use it to video the school and local environment. We all really enjoyed it and loved watching the videos and seeing the photos.
This afternoon we continued on with our energy topic by looking at how pneumatic systems work.
We used two syringes, some tubing, a burger box, a paper cup and a pipe cleaner. We have made our model and they all open and close using pneumatics. We just need to paint and decorate them…watch this space!
On 6th November, Emma Chittick came to P7 to start our renewable energy topic. We talked about the difference between renewable and non renewable energy, saw how turbines generate energy and were given the equipment to make our own turbines.
We had fun trying out the different rainforest games made by other groups in the class. We then gave each group constructive feedback to help them improve their design further before we take them to another class to play.
We had great fun in Spanish today when we used the iPads to revise previous learning. We played Kahoot, a multi-choice game, which not only showed how many of us got the correct answer, but also who was the fastest.
Lauryn and Bertie won the first game, followed by Cerys and Michaela, with Fearghas and Lily Jane coming in third.
Emmy and Niamh won the second round.
The final game revised the vocabulary for days and months and was won by Lily Jane and Fearghas.
We all loved it and it really helped to remind us of the vocabulary we had previously covered.
Jemima and Zara both thought it was great fun but quite stressful!
Michael said, “It was really good and helpful to learn more Spanish.”
AJ commented, “I enjoyed using the iPads to learn Spanish.”
